I used to hate regular theaters and would go to Drive in's because I could smoke and also drink booze in the car, plus it just felt more free then being cooped up. I could also watch the other screen if the one I paid for sucked, those were the drive in's where you tuned in the sound through the radio. All in all looking back I can see why they are gone now, VCR's did them in, all the freedom of the drive in was nothing compared to watching the movie at home! Anyway I have very little recollection of these ads in between as I never paid attention to them, it's pretty cool and I will play this to my teenage kids as a nostalgic prank when we watch a movie together at home, thanks!
Oh yeah,I remember well the Pepsi,Dairy Queen ads and kissing girls down on the front playground! :)
The movies I recall are The Ten Commandments,Incredible Two-Headed transplant,Weekend With the Babysitter(my very first time to see nude women)Tora,Tora,Tora!And being an old school a/v geek,harassing the projectionist!

Was wondering if this clip is really public domain. What would be the procedure if we wanted to use it in a Public Television show?

Hurry...only nine minutes before the show starts!
Moderately interesting assortment of intermission ads that you'd see at a drive-in movie...if you were fortunate to be around in the 1950's, 1960's and even the 1970's. I have a definite 'Jones' for hot buttered pop corn right now. Hmmmmm.
Next time I be sure and get that address for Skip and Dolly's Pizzeria...and also the liquor store.
Hey, what town are we in?
